We take the guesswork out of exercise and create tailored exercise programs to help you live a productive and healthy life.
I started Motion 4 Life Fitness as a way to prevent falls, general medical decline, and loss of independence. As a practicing emergency medicine physician for over 25 years, I have seen many injuries with physical, emotional and lifestyle implications.
Our exceptional staff recognizes the barriers to beginning exercise and the need for guidance and motivation to stay the course. Our job is to walk with you each step of the way – providing education, expertise, and a culture of support and social interaction.
We invite you to check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Have a great day and I look forward to meeting you!

Our Training Philosophy
At Motion 4 Life Fitness our professional trainers will create an individualized exercise program for each member based on health history and a fitness assessment. We believe proper guidance, instruction and encouragement is vital to a successful exercise program. Therefore, most of our memberships include personal training, either 1-on-1 or small group (2-4 people).
Depending on your membership choice, training sessions are either 30 or 60 minutes. We recommend working with a trainer twice per week, although when you choose your membership, you determine if you would like to meet more or less often.
Our group classes are available to all personal training members at no charge. These larger classes (12 people max) are designed by our trainers to complement personal training. They can be tailored to the individual’s participating as necessary. Flexibility, agility, balance and cardiovascular exercise are the focus of the classes. Our staff will help you choose appropriate classes for your exercise ability.
Meet The Staff
Carol Weesner, MD
She is an avid basketball fan and may have given Larry Bird a run for his money before a knee injury cut short her collegiate career at the University of Chicago (ok,….maybe that is a bit of a stretch with LB….). Her favorite literary character is Bernie Rhodenbarr and favorite leading men on television are Perry Mason and Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
Carol is most grateful in her life for having a wonderful family that is part of her everyday world.
Pam loves spending time with her children and grandchildren. She enjoys traveling, especially to Florida, as well as cooking and gardening in her spare time. She looks forward to a great opportunity in helping to grow Motion 4 Life into the premier gym experience for active agers.
Although several representatives from the Japan and China national teams have inquired about her services as an Olympic table tennis consultant, Motion 4 Life hopes that she remains with us in Indiana for a long time.

Director of Personal Training
He has helped a wide variety of individuals move, feel, and look better. These efforts have helped lead people to an improved quality of life and a longer life of independence. Dave is an excellent communicator and motivator and has designed specialized programs that may include weight loss, strength building, sport-specific conditioning, and general fitness.
Dave’s individualized programs put an emphasis on proper movement and progression in order to help clients reach their goals. By the way, Converse should sign him to an endorsement deal because nobody looks better in Chuck Taylors.
